Back at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, NECA revealed the long requested Bat Gremlin from Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Now NECA has sent out the official solicitations for the figure. Retailers should begin taking pre-orders very soon, if not already. The figure is scheduled to ship in December. Here are details from NECA:

One of the most requested Gremlins figures of all time is finally here! Our latest deluxe action figure from Gremlins 2: The New Batch is the spectacular Bat Gremlin, with a massive wingspan of nearly 18 inches.

This detailed re-creation of the puppet seen in Gremlins 2 is fully articulated, including hinged ears, hinged jaw, and jointed arms that allow the wings to spread open and fold closed! At approximately 6 inches tall, it’s perfectly in scale with our previous Gremlins action figures, too. Comes with a “flight” display stand.

NECA TCM Ultimate Leatherface 067

Today we have another really cool first look from our visit to NECA’s studio. They were kind enough to provide us with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre – Leatherface Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure. When it was released in 1974, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a revolutionary and shockingly brutal horror film. The film helped to define, what would become, the slasher genre of horror films. It faced bans in numerous countries and massive backlash for its portrayal of a man who wears a mask made of his murder victims’ human skin. While the actual on screen violence is fairly tame by today’s standards, the use of grainy film, the horrific scenery and the tense setups all combine to create a truly memorable experience. The growing fan base of exploitation horror films turned it into a massive financial success, gaining over $30 million on a $300,000 budget. By the 80’s, the film was a VHS cult hit and it spawned numerous sequels before getting caught up in the remake craze. The original Leatherface, however, remains one of the most iconic and terrifying figures in horror film history.

We have a massive gallery of the figure. After the jump you can find over 70 high resolution images. Also be sure to check out all of our NECA Toy Galleries, to keep up with our growing collection. See the photos and review after the jump.

NECA Commando John Matrix 037

Recently, the Toyark crew was fortunate enough to be able to visit the NECA Toys studio! They have an amazing and extremely talented crew of people working there. It was a blast to look around and see years and years worth of creations (many in 2-up prototype form) as well as the creators themselves in action. We were able to see many facets of the production of their toys from sculpting to painting to refinements, diorama creation and even product photography all take place. It was an exhilarating day to say the least. We had the good fortune to be able to speak with director Randy, diorama creator Stefan, sculptor Chris, photographer Stephen and more. We talked about what’s out now, about some of their upcoming items and about toys in general, all with people who create the type of products we all love to collect. Randy and the crew also supplied us with a few really awesome items to review. Starting today, and over the next few days, we’ll have galleries and reviews to share.

We’re kicking this off with a figure I couldn’t wait to grab. Check out our gallery and review of the NECA Commando John Matrix Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure. After the jump, we have over 50 high resolution photos. Also be sure to check out our NECA Toy Galleries for all of our past NECA photo shoots.
